If ever a sport demanded the perfect balance between instinct and precision, it is dressage. The German equestrian sensation, Jessica Von Bredow-Werndl quickly ascended to the top of a sport more than any other synonymous with timeless elegance. This makes her a fitting match for the brand. Years of training depend on the deep concentration and bond between rider and horse. Perfection is key, rigour is essential, patience is a must. Only then do athlete and animal become one, the dream team.
Jessica joined Richard Mille in 2016 and wears the RM 07-01 Carbon TPT®, like many of the female partners of the brand.
Jessica’s deep love for her horses is the cornerstone of her talent. Combined with diligence, it enables her to train them to the very highest level. Born in 1986, Jessica began competing in dressage at the end of the 1990s, qualifying for the Federal Championships at Warendorf in both 1998 and 1999. During the 2013-2014 season, she took 3rd place in the Neumünster (Germany) World Cup and the German National Championships, followed by 1st place in the Gothenburg World Cup. In 2015 she added a 3rd place finish at the World Cup Qualifier in Amsterdam and 3rd place in the World Cup Finals held in Las Vegas. She also obtained a second 1st place win at Gothenburg. Jessica successfully defended her 3rd-place finish at the next edition of World Cup Final in 2016 and in 2018- and hasn’t stopped chalking up success ever since.
Together with her brother Benjamin Werndl she set up ‘The Home of the Dressage Horse’ in Aubenhausen, Bavaria. The venture has helped the siblings accompany horses and oversee their schooling from initiation through to national and international championship levels.
‘Riding is a very emotional sport as there is a special bond which you develop in a long partnership with your horse. I'm a very passionate rider.’
